's going to take actions. >> well john kerry is going to follow up, the secretary of state, coming back here for din wer prime minister netanyahu. as a former two-term chief white house correspondent, david, you must have been identifying with our own chuck todd and how he tried to sneak in several questions. i wanted to play a little bit more of that wonderful exchange at the news conference last night. >> thank you, mr. president. mr. prime minister. mr. president, i want to follow up a little bit on the peace process. and mr. prime minister, i want to help out my colleague over here and then a question, another question i had for you. is why do you -- >> chuck, how many you got? you see how the young lady from channel 1, she had one question, she was very well behaved, chuck. >> i got one for you. >> these are muted questions. >> i get four questions. >> this is not a kosher question, but don't hog it. >> chuck, mine you're just incorrigible. >> so, so david, of course with the four questions, the centerpiece of the passover seder, there was a seder joke, a kosher joke, it was a bors
apartment in singapore. the fbi is now investigating the case. secretary of state john kerry and attorney general eric hold rer asking questions of the singapore government. singapore police say todd committed suicide. todd's parents say it was murder. now shane todd was found dead in his apartment in june just hours after his last day working for a prestigious government research firm. but did his work make him a target? >> reporter: shane todd, 31 years old, had a phd in electrical engineering and by all accounts a very bright future. he was working for the institute of micro electronics or ime, a prominent singapore research facility. his project involved creating faster, more powerful semiconductors. his parents say that in his last few months he was stressed, even expressing fear for his life. he had told them he didn't feel right about his work. that it might be illegal, even a risk to u.s. national security. with little faith in the singapore police and the fbi unable to help in a foreign country, the todds had little choice but to launch their own investigation. rick todd had pict
presidential campaign i worked for john kerry and dick gephardt two great progressives and being for civil unions in that campaign was considered the leading edge. >> it was a big deal then. >> big deal. in 2016 every democrat running for president will be for marriage equality. you know, frankly, i think the republicans as we saw with rob portman last week and the report they put out yesterday are starting to come our way, too. it's only a matter of time. >> that was my question. do you think that, well, if any democrat or for that matter any republican can get through 2016 that the obvious pickle is for republicans who are trying to get through the primaries? >> i think it'll be tough for a republican but if i look at "the washington post"/abc poll yesterday, 81% of people under the age of 30 -- 81% are for marriage equality. if they're not going to be for it in 2016 they're going to be for it in 2020 or 2024. >> vice president biden, maryland's governor, martin o'malley, of course new york's governor andrew cuomo, all of them for same sex marriage. do you think we'll see a sort of a win
to find out. there are new players, particularly john kerry involved, and i think he will be very effective in that part of the world. >> has it been sufficiently noted that the president met with abu abbas, or sometimes called abu massa, the head of the palestinians? >> there's no problem. >> while he was there on this trip. >> well, however he meets with him, how many times -- >> it has been underplayed in the u.s. press? >> i'm sure it has been underplayed. >> was it a brief meeting? do you know anything about it? >> i do not. it was a very brief meeting but i don't know anything about it. i do know what the reaction was within the leadership of israel and i think they felt we finally have an environment in which we can talk constructively. >> talking about a two-state solution, there's some talk over there about a one-state solution. read the economist. one-state solution is a bad idea, correct? >> yes, i think it's a bad idea. >> should be two states. >> israel is never going to go for a one-state solution because they would soon be outnumbered by the palestinians. >> they wi
of state kerry who will be remaining in the region. >> secretary of state john kerry was critical at this administration's lack of peace making. now that he's secretary of state does this auger well of new posture of diplomacy aimed toward creating peace in this volatile region. >> it would. it would be fortuitous. he was not president obama's first choice. that's not the strategy here. the strategy is focused on 2014 to get a domestic agenda done. if secretary kerry can make nice noises in the region, that's fine. >> you're kind of cynical. you think this is all smoke and mirrors. >> i was in it on both sides in the first clinton administration when there was a lot of fanfare in 1993, dialogue and direct negotiations would take off. they didn't until after clinton, after he was re-elected in the mid-terms in 1998, didn't take off until then. same thing in the george w. bush administration i was also a professional middle east advisor there. i just think it's not going to happen. there was no discussion here about halting settlements critical. you can say they're critical, make me
success. just ask john kerry. what was the problem for the debates? the number of them or the participants? one more takeaway from the report, if you can't beat them, join them. the report says this. quote, well-funded conservative groups should seek to hire activists to attract democratic incumbents and cameras with -- after learning the hard way what video cameras did to todd aiken, george allen, even many murdoch. republicans want to return the favor, clearly. while republicans try to rehabilitate the party's image they have a more fundamental problem to solve. all the process fixes in the world can't deal with the basic question. who are they? as the gop tries to solve this mini identity crisis, feuds are breaking out all over as people try to move around and box each other out to decide who gets to play this game. those divisions were on full display at this weekend's cpac convention as republicans argued about whether the gop needs to expand i wants appeal or reject moderation and return to conservative principles. and debated what exactly those core principles are. former alaska gov
of state, john kerry, the vice president, joe biden, who also have to answer for their role in this. people like wolfowitz, cheney, rumsfeld, should not be given any kind of honor in this society. they should be held accountable for the u.s. soldiers that were killed and i think it's many more than 100,000 iraqis that were killed. >> i'm sure. mike, former bush speechwriter david frumm has written a column in which he reveals long conversations held in 2002 with dick cheney. according to frumm, the two men talked less about promoting democracy and how iraq might become a source of oil to the united states. mike, was cheap oil really at the heart of this invasion? >> you know, i wouldn't go that far, martin, but i would say that fears that the persian gulf could be disrupted by saddam and oil, therefore, become much more expensive were certainly part of it. i'm not a huge fan of most of the folks from the bush administration, myself. but i do think that someone like dick cheney did not fundamentally seek to expand american influence, you know, imperialistically or go for big oil profits for
minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry. he laid a wreath in the hall of remembrance then offered these thoughts. >> this accounting of horror is in the end a source of hope. for here we learn that we are never powerless. in our lives we always have choices. to seccumb to our worst instincts or to summon the better angels of our nature. >> the president made a quick trip to bethlehem to visit the church of the nativity with palestinian president mahmoud abbas and is now preparing to head to ahman, jordan. nbc's chuck todd traveled ahead of the president and joins me live now from there in ahman. chuck, i can only imagine the university of miami cheerleaders brought a smile to your face in amman, jordan. >> good morning. that was a great surprise. we're inside by the way. if you look behind me you can see it's a little dusty out there. there's been heavy winds almost like a sandstorm out here. it's actually something that prevented the president from choppering to bethlehem. instead he had to motorcade there. it's that type of windy day here. i say that because we coul
president bush's in 2009. secretary of state john kerry will accompany the president. president obama will also meet with palestinian leaders in the west bank. political analysts say the president has fence mending to do with both israelis and palestinians if he hopes to revive the stalled middle east peace process. >>> in just about 30 minutes, president obama will nominate assistant attorney general tomas perez. as the labor department secretary. he's been in charge of the civil rights division since 2005. he would be the first latino nominated by president obama for his second-term cabinet. hilda so list resigned in -- solis resigned in january to return home to family. >>> the san francisco symphony canceled its east coast tour because the musicians are on strike. a proposal was rejected to continue performances for a cooling-off period. still no word on when negotiations will resume. >>> 8:11. this week marks ten years since the u.s.-led invasion of iraq. the security concerns still plaguing the iraqi people. >>> and how a new grant for adding more police officers could mean offi
and secretary of state in john kerry. and i think they're going to have them cease and desist from the aggressive tactics they're they think and turn this situation into one where the government begins to listen to the people on the street and gives them an opportunity to say what they have to say and try to reduce this level of violence. i don't think it would make any sense right now, for the united states to cut off all aid. we would lose influence if we did that. better to use american influence in this very important country behind the scenes which the administration i think is doing. >> megyn: it's supposed to be a new day when morsi ascended and the muslim brotherhood said they'd never seek the presidency, turned out not to be true. it's supposed to be a new day. and dozens of islamists protesting outside of tv studios that are independent and critical of morsi and that's not the direction we were opening to go in, ambassador bolten. what do you think we're doing behind the scenes? president obama hasn't spoken on this publicly yet, nor has secretary kerry, i believe, so wha
